Ceci n'est pas une pipe.

This is the fifth studio chair painting, another 20x16 oil on multimedia board.  I started doing these paintings after I looked around the studio for Morandi type still life bottles and tins.  All I saw were chairs.  But unlike Morandi, I don't think I'm going to paint chairs for the rest of my life.  You may notice the pipe.  I put it there both for Vincent and Thor.  The painter Thor Wickstrom noticed that the pipe was missing from the previous chair done in homage to Vincent.

Nice, especially with the pipe!

Donna, Thank you. It did need something, and the pipe has a tradition.
